Stay away from the front brake for sure! if you latch on to that going down a steep hill you will end up over the bars. That being said if you need to stop quick just get your butt back over that rear tire use the back brakes as needed but dont lock them out so your tire is sliding all over caus then you will lose grip, but you can also just every so slightly feather the front brakes if its really needed. Hope that helps have fun on the trails 🙂
